Hi, Does "to gut" also mean "to remove the bones of"? That's the impression I got from the last panel of the attached comic strip. Thanks in advance. Relevant text, copied by Cagey, moderator. The Calvin (a young boy) has caught a fish. Dad: I’ll show you how to clean it and we’ll have it for dinner. Calvin: Clean it? Dad: Cut off its head and gut it. [Next scene: Calvin is sitting at a table, and he asks for a cheese sandwich. ] Calvin: Ha ha, no bones in these, right? [End of the strip.] Source: the comic strip "Calvin and Hobbs".
